A couple weeks ago I was faced with the challenge of installing Red Hat 3scale and configuring its tenants using solely the command line — no GUI allowed. This is a rather interesting use case, so I decided to write this article and show how to do it with just seven commands!
(By the way, I also decided to include Red Hat Single Sign-On (SSO) in the mix because I want my APIs to use OpenID Connect (OIDC) for authentication. But I’ll leave those commands to a future article.)

The Quarkus project is becoming quite popular among developers. Quarkus provides a fast-dev environment, and it has already a set of libraries, standards, and frameworks that are made available through extensions like RestEasy, Panache, SmallRye, Keycloak, and Kafka. Additionally, you can start using Kogito today to create intelligent Quarkus applications.

The Picketlink project is now a deprecated module in Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP), so there’s a chance that Picketlink will no longer ship with the next release of EAP/Wildfly and that there will not be any fixes in the near future for the
Picketlink, however, is now merged with Keycloak, an open source identity and access management solution developed by Red Hat’s JBoss Community. In this article, we’ll present an alternative solution to the
picketlink module. Some organizations use
picketlink as the service provider to enable SAML-based authentication with a third-party identity provider (i.e., Active Directory Federated Services (AD FS), OKTA, PingFederate, etc.). In this, article, we’ll see how the keycloak-saml adapter can be configured in the place of Picketlink to enable SAML-based authentication with a third-party identity provider.

The Reactica roller coaster is the latest addition to Coderland, our fictitious amusement park for developers. It illustrates the power of reactive computing, an important architecture for working with groups of microservices that use asynchronous data to work with each other.
In this scenario, we need to build a web app to display the constantly updated wait time for the coaster.

In the previous article of this series, Deploy your API from a Jenkins Pipeline, we discovered how the 3scale toolbox can help you deploy your API from a Jenkins Pipeline on Red Hat OpenShift/Kubernetes. In this article, we will improve the pipeline from the previous article to make it more robust, less verbose, and also offer more features by using the 3scale toolbox Jenkins Shared Library.

In a previous article, 5 principles for deploying your API from a CI/CD pipeline, we discovered the main steps required to deploy your API from a CI/CD pipeline and this can prove to be a tremendous amount of work. Hopefully, the latest release of Red Hat Integration greatly improved this situation by adding new capabilities to the 3scale CLI. In 3scale toolbox: Deploy an API from the CLI, we discovered how the 3scale toolbox strives to automate the delivery of APIs. In this article, we will discuss how the 3scale toolbox can help you deploy your API from a Jenkins pipeline on Red Hat OpenShift/Kubernetes.

Deploying your API from a CI/CD pipeline can be a tremendous amount of work. The latest release of Red Hat Integration greatly improved this situation by adding new capabilities to the 3scale CLI. The 3scale CLI is named 3scale toolbox and strives to help API administrators to operate their services as well as automate the delivery of their API through Continuous Delivery pipelines.
Having a standard CLI is a great advantage for our customers since they can use it in the CI/CD solution of their choice (Jenkins, GitLab CI, Ansible, Tekton, etc.). It is also a means for Red Hat to capture customer needs as much as possible and offer the same feature set to all our customers.

With companies generating more and more revenue through their APIs, these APIs also have become even more critical. Quality and reliability are key goals sought by companies looking for large scale use of their APIs, and those goals are usually supported through well-crafted DevOps processes. Figures from the tech giants make us dizzy: Amazon is deploying code to production every 11.7 seconds, Netflix deploys thousands of time per day, and Fidelity saved $2.3 million per year with their new release framework. So, if you have APIs, you might want to deploy your API from a CI/CD pipeline.
Deploying your API from a CI/CD pipeline is a key activity of the “Full API Lifecycle Management.” Sitting between the “Implement” and “Secure” phases, the “Deploy” activity encompasses every process needed to bring the API from source code to the production environment. To be more specific, it covers Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery.

As part of the microservices adoption journey, there will come a time when an organization starts to implement more and more rules services as part of the total application solution landscape. There could be hundreds of rules services to be managed and deployed at one time, making the job of the application team more challenging and eventually causing delays to the entire production rollout.
Red Hat Decision Manager (RHDM) is a solution that enables developers and application teams to implement decision services or business rules for their application needs. I will be covering how we can fully utilize the capabilities brought by Red Hat Decision Manager and Red Hat OpenShift to enable a smooth CI/CD process, in order to have rapid decision services deployment. (This tutorial assumes you already have a good understanding of RHDM and OpenShift.)
